The 2006 Frostig Collection

R. Kenton Nelson

was born and raised in the Los Angeles area. He attended Long Beach State University, then the Otis Parsons Art Institute, and for the last 25 years has had his studio in Pasadena. He has been on the faculty of the Otis Parsons Art Institute in Los Angeles and the Academy of Art in San Francisco.

Just last year alone, Nelson had solo exhibitions in New York, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Pasadena and Montecito, California, as well as Austria. His work has graced the cover of the New Yorker and was seen in the award-winning film Something’s Got to Give. He recently had his first retrospective entitled “Rhyme and Reason” and “Prose and Cons,” at the Pasadena Museum of California Art and the Reynolds Gallery at Westmont College in Montecito, California. (

Nelson’s paintings idealize the ordinary, from the lowly clothespin to attractive young people riding bicycles or simply waiting. For Frostig, Nelson chose to sculpt the bellman, an Everyman who often appears in his paintings. This is the first bronze sculpture Nelson has created in recent years and a rare opportunity for collectors.
